A binding for the libproccpuinfo library


 (use proccpuinfo)



This egg contains thoroughly commented Chicken code (mainly in the "proccpuinfo.scm" file) which is intended to be an example of how a basic Chicken binding of a simple C library can be created.


This binding is distributed as a Chicken egg. To compile and install this egg, you must first download and install libproccpuinfo.

libproccpuinfo can be downloaded from here.

Its documentation can be found here.

Once you've installed libproccpuinfo, you can compile and install this egg by typing:

 chicken-install proccpuinfo


 This egg has only been tested with libproccpuinfo version 0.0.8

Troubleshooting tips

If you receive an error from chicken-install about not being able to find "proccpuinfo.h" or about not being able to find "-lproccpuinfo", try passing the locations of libproccpuinfo's header and library files to chicken-install via your shell's CFLAGS and LDFLAGS environment variables.

For example, you could try running something like the following from your shell:

 CFLAGS=-I/usr/local/libproccpuinfo/include LDFLAGS=-L/usr/local/libproccpuinfo/lib chicken-install proccpuinfo

Substitute the path you've installed libproccpuinfo to in place of "/usr/local/libproccpuinfo"
